WOMAN FIGHTER - female portrait of the civil resistance in Macedonia 2015
How feminine it sounds: Free Macedonia! The woman’s will is unwavering. She is everywhere around us and she is the guiding strength of life because the love, the truth, the justice, the tolerance, the bravery, and the freedom are at her side. This exhibition is just a small portrait of the female face of the year marked with whistles, chants and rallies at the streets. An echo of the authentic women fight with the police batons, the shields, the boots with metal sole, with the barricades, the tear gas and the water cannons. An echo of the female NO to the injustice, the violence and the crime. Despite being proclaimed as the grand-daughters of the witches who the ancestors of the tsar couldn’t burn, the Macedonian women conquer the streets fearlessly and tirelessly.
Soon they will conquer the freedom!
Exhibition curated by Ljumi Bekiri & Kristina Lelovac.
